to solving the low enrollment and lack of enthusiasm around the law. >> not enough pr, that is what we're hearing this morning. i'll let you respond to that. also, as part of the polling, this comes from united technologies congressional connection poll. about -- actually, more than half of these young people, 18 to 29 who were surveyed said, they actually think the law is going to get repealed. whether that's reality or not, it's the perception. if they think that after three-plus years of what most of us would argue there's been pr, how in the world do you convince them at this point to sign up? >> absolutely, shannon. i think what this really shows is millenials are a whole lot smarter than president obama thinks they are. they have looked at the choices and, as this poll shows, they are not really interested. he catapulted to his presidency by taking this group of people for granted and as much as i think young people want to see some sort of health care reform, they are not really interested in being forced to pay for something that doesn't really benefit them. >> richard, what do

were just out there pimping ourselves and the law practice the blog would be very different and much less successful. how well it does or doesn't right now really turns on the fact that people don't perceive it as something that's out there trying to sell you something or to develop the some advantage for our law practice and i do think tony raises a really important set of issues that should be discussed and that is, okay, but can you truly have it both ways? can you practice in front of the supreme court, right, and your professional success there depends on your credibility with the justice and at the same time run an institution that is going to truly cover the supreme court? and truly be able to describe it warts and all? and how is it that you navigate that sort of thing if you want to really call yourself a journalistic institution? because that dilemma will repeat itself too potentially. if you're an expert in physickings, if you're an expert in plumbing there are lots of things you can talk about and write about and cover where you don't face the dilemma of really pissing so

the health care law. it's not enough to say they turned in their work sloppy. no, the screaming you hear now is liar, liar pants on fire. it's an escalation of the old refrain the president's not who he says he is. nobody knew him in school, went the donald trump rant. he's not from here. now comes the charge the president's health care law is not on the level. that the president didn't just fail to get it right the first time, he's a liar. and on benghazi, he's something else they say. howard fineman and sam stein are both with "the huffington post" and both msnbc contributors. ted cruz's trail buddy has taken it to new heights. during a hangout yesterday, the texas senator used the issues of benghazi and the affordable care act to accuse the president of something truly sinister. let's listen. >> i think the current administration has taken lying to a new level. to me that's one of the most aggravating thing about what's happening in washington these days. particularly about this administration. which is a lack of accountability. and the willingness to mislead people or provide them just d

to shrill for this bad law. i feel sorry for them because the mittology they are trying to create about obamacare is very different from the reality most people are experiencing. and when you say you can keep your doctor if you are willing to pay more, that's a very different statement than you can keep your doctor, period, which is what the president said. >> actually, i thought when i heard that, i couldn't think if it was arrogant or we americans were some sort of social experiment in the petri dish. they didn't understand american people for the most part having to pay more means a whole lot more to people. maybe not to people who make a lot of money but to most people. i was surprised when i heard that. >> when you get outside of the washington bubble. i was reading today some the emails and letters that have come into our office. these are incredibly real and profound impacts on people's lives. we had a couple that had sent in and said that their premium were going up by $400 a month. >> that's a lot of money. >> deductible gone up by $1,400. i feel like the federal government jus

for obama care so blame them for your troubles. as jonathan allen writes, if they aren't aware of the law's upside or can't remember it amid the problems with the rollout, democrats will be holding on to a anchor rather than a buoy which leads us back to the presidential pr pitch and peter alexander outside the white house. you just heard the president's speech. do you think the bully pulpit has lost its power at this point? >> reporter: a lot of people who paid attention to the last couple of months for this white house feel they've heard events not too dissimilar to this multiple times. this is the reboot, 3.0. the white house feels strongly this is the time it's going to work. the president made it pretty clear, krystal, you can make fun of me or kind of give me a hard time or website a hard time but you can't give this law a hard time. what was noticeable was the standing ovation when he said this law, affordable care act is not going to be repeal as long as i'm president and that got everybody on their feet, people who benefit from the law at this time. one of the real focuses is the
